Off to Miami...

I'm heading down to Miami for a couple days for business, but while I'm down there I'm planning on attending a really neat food event called the Burger Bash which is a part of the South Beach Food & Wine Festival and hosted by Rachael Ray. Essentially, it's a big tent on the beach filled with different stations with Chefs cooking what they think is the best burger. At the end of the night, there is a vote as to which is the best. There are some pretty neat Chefs lined up for the event (Spike from Top Chef! & Bobby Flay!). I bolded the ones I'm planning on scouting out to see what they have prepared
  • Ai Fiori (Michael White)
  • Allen Brothers (Samir Dhurandhar)
  • Amstel Light (Jonathon Sawyer) Food & Wine Magazine Best New Chef Winner
  • B Spot (Michael Symon)
  • Bistro one LR at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach
  • BLT Steak Miami (Laurent Tourondel) Food & Wine Magazine Best New Chef Winner
  • Bobby's Burger Palace (Bobby Flay)
  • Bulldog Burger (Howie Kleinberg)
  • Burger & Beer Joint
  • Charm City Burger
  • Ciao Bella Gelato
  • El Mago de las Fritas
  • Every Day with Rachael Ray  (Paul Malvone, Boston Burger Company)
  • Good Stuff Eatery (Spike Mendelsohn)
  • Fireman Derek's Pies
  • Ingrid Hoffman
  • Jacques Torres
  • Landmarc (Marc Murphy)
  • Lonesome Dove Cafe (Tim Love)
  • Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink (Michael Schwartz)
  • Morimoto (Masaharu Morimoto)
  • Qsine by JVS from Celebrity Cruises (Jacques Van Staden)
  • Radius (Michael Schlow)
  • Shake Shack
  • Town Kitchen & Bar
  • The National (Geoffrey Zakarian)
  • Umami Burger
  • Village Whiskey (Jose Garces)
Needless to say, I'm pretty excited! Like any red blooded half American man I love a good beer and burger. The only downside to this event is that I'm stuck drinking Amstel Light the whole night...
